“Great way to spend a few hours!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This museum is a hidden treat in Waterloo. There are very moving and informative exhibits, well displayed and well explained. The Grout Museum attached is also well worth your time. If you're an Iowan especially, this museum hits close to the heart. Very moving examples of real experiences and sacrifices during various wars and you get a real flavor of how it was then.

“Very moving experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

The museum is great. This rates up with the Smithsonians in DC. Very informative and a great interactive tribute to the Iowan veterans.

“Wish I could give this 4.5 stars!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

When looking for something to break up a trip from eastern to central Iowa, I came across info about this museum. We decided to stop, and what a treat! It's connected with the Grout Museum (local history), but we didn't have time to visit that part. With two hours, we just didn't have time! The exhibits in the Veterans Museum are really well done, with tons of hands-on things that our kids loved. And there was plenty for adults to absorb as well. It covers Civil War to current conflicts, and includes artifacts as well as interviews with veterans and so much more. I would highly recommend this museum, especially for Iowans interested in the state's military history.
